    No doubt I have to agree with this artice http://www.retrojunk.com/details_articles/3390/

    To be a true 90's kid you had to be at least born by 87 so you remember the whole decade.
    But that doesn't mean you should hate on young users.

    I remember just about all that stuff (I watched Dinosaurs all the time when I was little), but I was only born in 1990. However, I wouldn't consider myself a full-fledged '90s kid considering I was only in third grade when the millennium rolled around. Unfortunately, there are going to be some even younger kids who are going to beg to differ...

    Also, what's with that Pokémon screenshot? Razor Cut?

    lets say youre 13 - 15 then your true decade is the 2000's. But I guess the 2000's suck so bad (which I don't agree with) that they have to pretend they are 90's kids.

    Well, Guess What? I'm a 90's kid, because I, Timothy Robert "Tim Box" McKenzie, was born in St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland on May 21, 1991 to Susan Mary McKenzie (my mom, who is born on Janurary 6, 1954) and Douglas Robert McKenzie (my dad, born on December 3, 1954) who raised me in Crownsville, Maryland, thereafter. Ever since that day, I have two brothers; the youngest was William Stuart "Billy" McKenzie, aged 15, and born October 28, 1992; and the oldest was Scott Martin McKenzie, aged 19, and born on February 23, 1989.

    I was also very good at Ruth Easton, what was then The Little Red Skool House (now replaced by a gas station, a carwash, and a Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins combo in 1999 or 2000), Severna Park Elementary School (for Grades 2 through 5), Old Mill Middle School South (from grades 6 through and more recently, Old Mill High School (2005 through present).

    I have friends past and present like Antonio Jackson (an african american kid in a class owned by my current teacher, Mr. Peter Judd. A.J. has a fear of authority (especially the police), and will likely be referred to as A.J.), Mike Falls, Nick, Shane, Emily and other students in my Biology class (which I took from 2007 to 2008), and friends on the bus like Kenneth, Collons, and Megan, and Kayla Marie Mallo.

    Well, my younger brother Billy and I, who is the middle child in my McKenzie family, are truly '90's kids, although Scott was an truly '80's kid (in fact, he was born as that decade closes in 1989.). I grew up with The Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and even cartoons such as the original and first Land Before Time film (and Land Before Time II, III, IV, and V), the Pebble and the Penguin, the Disney cartoons (past and present, such as Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast, Little Mermaid, Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi, among others) and others.

    As we reached the 21st century, starting with the 2000's, I got Cartoon Network in my area, and I grew up with dinosaurs, Disney's Dinosaur, Dexter's Lab, Dexter's Lab: Ego Trip. The Powerpuff Girls, The Powerpuff Girls Movie, Samurai Jack, Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, his 2005 remake of King Kong, The Jurassic Park movies, and others.


    Yeah, I am a true 90's kid. I'm born in the early '90's, but grew up in the rest of the '90's the 21st century and the 2000's. I have got to tell ya, you guys, I was born a truly '90's kid who eventually grew up in the 2000's.

    Yep, I'm a 90's kid because I was born in that decade, do you?

    I remember almost everything from that list, but anyway...

    I see your point and you are right (to a point) that you should remember a whole decade to call yourself a kid of said decade. However, what about the middle kids who are split between two decades? It's not fair to shove us all out of the first decade and into the second, especially when most of us prefer the first. I was only 7 when the 90s ended, so I guess I'm a kid of the 00s too, but here's the thing about being a called a kid of a certain decade...

    Kid means child so it implies childhood. When I hear "childhood", I think of the 90s because they were the highlight of my childhood and thinking about those years gives me the feeling of nostalgia. "Nostalgia" by definition means "a mixed feeling of happiness, sadness, and longing when recalling a person, place, or event from the past, or the past in general". I don't have that feeling about 2000-now. I can only remember about half of the 90s, but that half is better than this whole decade so far has been.

    You're looking at the term "kid" age-wise, and in those terms, I'm not a "true" 90s kid and I admit that. But if you measure it by the heart, anyone who was a child then, has some recollection of that decade, truly loves and misses it should be deserving of the title 90s kid. It shouldn't be about how much of it you can remember, but how much you love the memories you do have.

    Well I was born right on 1987, so I guess I am a true 90's kid. I don't think there's any movie, cartoon, game, or anything else I don't like that isn't 90's related.

    I'm not saying someone can't remember a decade or can't be a part of it, I was just agreeing with the article that if you truly want to be a kid/teen/adult/whateva of said decade you got to remember it from start to finish. But hey this is a great forum and if 14 years olds want to read about the decade thats great. But dude like let's say you were born in 1993. You missed over 2 full years just by your birth and when do you really start remembering stuff what 3 - 4 years old.

    I agree with Swing on this. How can you claim to be a 90's kid and tlk about how great a decade was when you missed like half of it...Any ways Im never going to say I am a 90's kid, because I did miss half of a decade...I still lived through it and rember good things yes, but Me and alll the other people here who were born during the 90's have to realize...were 00's kids...
